    No matter what he picks up, he makes it sound just right.

    That first tune is so understated and just right.

    That is not easy. That is throwing away ego and just holding waaaay back for a groove and for the tune.

    I saw him last month and he played that guitar a lot.. I was far enough away I thought it was a Strat.

    He's playing a pile of different guitars now, he switched almost every song. There was some interview I saw recently where he said he was kind of embarrassed at how many guitars he's playing these days, like it's a little out of control.

    I really want to know if he actually had the **** to actually name this Mr. Williams guy by his real name. He's mentioned in about 1/2 the songs on the new album and it's clearly a reference to whoever it was who inspired "This Land" with unneighborly behavior.

    What the heck is up with the laugh track in this...

    I literally just got back from seeing him. This Blazer guitar got a lot of action. Like, a LOT. The vast majority. The man is just formidable. He pulled a version of Our Love like no other on it.
